This book is fairly comprehensive without being too technical. While is is impossible to cover the entire realm of disabilities, it serves it's purpose well and is quite informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars good reference tool January 7, 2012
One of the few books purchased for class that I will be keeping. Great reference tool and good information. I teach special education preschool. However, the book is not specific to education and would be a good reference tool for anyone who works with children with special needs.

I had to buy this book for a class at the last minute. I was able to get my hands on this and was thankful. I got it quickly. Now I just have been working through it... written by a neuroscience person it is hard to digest.

Easy to understand introduction to childhood development involving disabilities. I will keep this as a reference for years to come. Book is nicely subdivided into easily digestible sections with appropriate headings. That takes some of the sting out of studying, helps you to take good notes, and helps you to find information quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars this book is a treasure chest of information February 10, 2010

I am so thankful for this book. I first came across the 3rd edition of this book just last year, given to me by a doctor friend who thought it might be helpful. And it sure has been. I'm a special education teacher from the states, now a sp ed consultant in a developing country where sp ed is in the pioneering stages. I am dealing with disabiities I never saw in the states, so this book is very helpful in my on-going education. I just got the 6th edition and am eager to see what's new (the 3rd edition was written in the early 90's!).
The book is well written and organized, so that it is a valuable resource whether I am studying about a certain disability or just want to look up certain information.
